Weight Watchers Points Calculation

To calculate the Weight Watchers points for this recipe, we’ll use the nutritional values and the WW points formula. Weight Watchers uses a proprietary points system that factors in calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein. As of the latest update, the formula generally used is:

Points=Calories50+Saturated Fat (g)4−Protein (g)10+Sugar (g)8.5

Given the complexity and proprietary nature of the exact formula, here’s an approximation:

  1. Calories Contribution: 744850=149
  2. Saturated Fat Contribution: Approx. 80% of total fat is saturated: 416.84=104.2
  3. Protein Contribution: 112.310=11.2
  4. Sugar Contribution: Approx. 70% of carbs are sugars: 429.18.5=50.5

Approximate Total WW Points


Per Serving Calculation

If the cheesecake is divided into 16 servings, the points per serving would be: 292.516≈18.3

So, each serving of the Banana-Strawberry Cheesecake Dream would be approximately 18 Weight Watchers points.

Note: For precise and personalized points, it’s recommended to use the official Weight Watchers app or website.
